Rancho Santa Fe Real Estate
Located in North County San Diego, the unincorporated area of Rancho Santa Fe is known for its celebrity residents, rural ambiance and large homes on spacious lots.

"The Ranch" as it is fondly referred to is an Historic California Landmark. The land grant which started it all was made to a man by the name of Lebrado Silva in 1831. Juan Maria Osuna the Mayor of San Diego aquired the land in 1836. Over time, his family had sold off most of the property, leaving only 200 acres in their possession. In 1906 the Santa Fe Railway purchased the land to grow Eucalyptus trees to be made into railroad ties. The trees proved to be unacceptable for railroad usage and residential development then began. In 1917 the Lake Hodges dam was completed and bought water to the area. Construction of the village of Rancho Santa Fe began in 1922.

The original subdivision of Rancho Santa Fe was called "the Covenant." Planning and respect for the environment were hallmarks of the project. The homes of the covenant were designed by a local architect named Lillian Rice. The winding roads of the area were laid out with the intent to keep drivers from going too fast through the area in order to appreciate the surrounding scenery. All the public buildings in the area were designed in the Spanish Colonial Revival style; the Inn, library, civic center and school. Rice also designed some private residences to reflect this style- always paying close attention to details.

Residents guard the appearance of the Civic Center and work to closely retain its original styling. 21/2 acres is the minimum lot size on the covenant to retain the atmosphere of rural living. Homes and estates in Rancho Santa Fe are highly desirable to the most discerning of buyers. The Inn at Rancho Santa Fe has played host to many celebrities and serves as the perfect getaway for visitors that want to relax in luxury in a peaceful countryside setting.

Polo is a favorite pastime of the area residents as the area is popular with equestrians. The area is home to some of the finest horse trainers in the U.S. and served as the site for the equestrian events during the 1984 Summer Olympics. There are bridal paths all throughout the ranch. The peaceful inland location of Rancho Santa Fe offers residents all the amenities of luxury country living while being close to some of the best beaches in all of Southern California.
